Welcome to NaNoWriMo!

Your region is without an official Municipal Liaison this year. But you can still have fun on the forums and meet in-person with other Wrimos. Just start a post and propose a get-together or chat.

Please follow the Codes of Conduct.

If you would like to apply to be an ML next year, more details are on our Local Volunteers page.

Have a great time!

Hey there my fellow Kenyans. Hope you are looking forward to November because it's just around the corner. Want to get your opinion on write-in venues. With the number of Java options might be nice to change things around a little this year. What say you?

It's almost time people. I hope everyone who intended to get through NaNoWriMo this year with a 50k novel is well on their way to finishing and verifying. If that's not you...worry not. There is room enough to finish your novel in the coming months and celebrate what has always been a great writing adventure.

We're coming to the end of week one and I can still see some blank word count bars. People...let's do a lot more writing. Or perhaps a little more presence on the forums. Come around, tell us what your up to this fine November of 2014.

The final stretch! Don't forget - there's a TGIO party this Friday night at Brew Bistro in Nairobi (6pm-8pm). Come and meet your wrimos. Hopefully we'll continue to encourage each other as writers throughout the year.

Don't forget there's a sale on halos this week. All it costs is a donation to nanowrimo to keep the website running.

One week just flew by! We have a write-in this Tuesday at the iHUB @ 6pm - check calendar below for details. See images of the art we made during last week's kick off event here:

Congrats wrimos! The Africa::Kenya group just pass 50 members. Tanzania still boasts 110 members, so we have our work cut out for us in recruiting this weekend.

Your homework: Dress up for Halloween and hand out candy with an invite to join nanowrimo. (And sleep a lot)

Nanowrimo search should be up in a few days. Until then, we don't know how many Kenya wrimos we have yet - but keep recruiting. I know you've needed that excuse to strike up a conversation with that cute girl/guy in the coffee house/matatu. Tell them about Nanowrimo today!
